No Inventory in Burlingame Terrace
Inventory levels were low all through summer in the Burlingame neighborhood of Burlingame Terrace. At the end of August 2013, there were no unsold homes on the market.
Here are some highlights for the Burlingame Terrace real estate market as of August 2013:
- Bidding wars have been common in Burlingame Terrace. The average home sold this year has gone for 6% above the asking price (around $70,000 over asking). Of course, not all homes sell for more than the asking price.
- Recent months have seen most homes sell in less two weeks.
- Compared to 2012, through August, sales are down (21 sales versus 17), but are holding up very well against a lack of supply (new listings are down from 31 versus 17)
Prices have been rising steadily for the past 18 months or so in Burlingame Terrace and now appear to be at record levels. The area recorded sub $1 million average and median selling prices from 2009 to 2011. That is not likely to recur anytime soon.
Yes, the average days on market for homes sold in the first eight months of 2012 was half the comparable period in 2013. So, are homes languishing on the market in 2013? Not at all, instead, what we saw at the beginning of the year were a few listings in the slow winter time take a few months to sell. This brought up the average. In the past four months, most sold homes were on the market for less than two weeks!
